Chess School is different from Chess Club. Students receive
advanced training to improve their chess skills. We bring in master level teachers and plan fun activities. This
is the only time that Squires and above can work on their chess knowledge. Cost is $5/week.
Students will promote to the next level as they complete their cards.
We hold promotion ceremonies 2-3 times a year. Students who promote will receive awards and gifts to celebrate
Students are expected to play two games of chess online or in person
during the week. There are several ways to accomplish this…. By playing in a chess tournament, playing on a chess
program like Chess Master or playing online at Free Internet Chess Server www.freechess.org
The best way for a parent to help and support their child
in learning chess, is to make the time for them to work on their skills every day. Taking your child to chess tournaments
and extracurricular chess activities is also important. Offering to play chess with your child or playing the part of
checkmate "victim" is a great way to help your child.
